This is a new resource for Christmas 2010. Mandy Groce has created an original Advent coloring book.

  1. Thank you. I have been fishing around trying to find something suitable for my class of 7-12 year-olds which meets once a month. I have just recovered from an operation and ready to go. All the material listed from you is just what I needed. Thank you. God’s blessing on you and your ministry.

  2. Thank you every body who contributes to this website.
    I need a quick/easy/low maintenance Christmas idea, and you have blessed me with more than ONE!
    Our childrens ministry has about 30 kids a week, but different kids every week. These are also busy kids, so the less rehearsing, the less hassle, the better. its also my first year in the job.
    Tossing up between “Twas the night before Christmas” and “The Twases of Christmas”
    Especial thank you to the author of those two items.
